Using Over-the-Counter Medications in Children
Over the counter medication means you can buy the medicine without a doctor’s prescription. However this doesnt mean that OTCs are harmless. OTCs can be dangerous when not taken the right way. Talk to your doctor before giving any medication to your child for the first time.
All over the counter medications have the same kind of label. The label gives important information such as what it is used for, how it is used and what to watch out for . Look on the bottle to see where it says drug facts.
